This is a compensated review by BlogHer.
Wishing you had one of these babies? You are not alone! It’s high on my list so I can carry a portfolio around and go online when on the road. Gosh it would be so nice to have. I played with one 2 weeks ago and fell head over heels…

If you frequent my blog, you’ll have noticed an advertising campaign on my sidebar called BlogHer. I have been asked many times in the past what exactly BlogHer is. So finally, an official post!
What is BlogHer?
BlogHer is actually TWO things.
#1. An advertising network
#2. A website.
With a twist. BlogHer is a network that features and caters to women bloggers.
Blog Her. Get it? 🙂
Ever wish your blogging passion could turn into a little more? Here’s an opportunity for you!
The BlogHer widget that sits on the face of my blog is an advertising network. The widget features quality brand name advertising, as well as links to other BlogHer blogger posts such as the example above. Every so often you’ll see my own posts in that list all over blogland. It’s a wonderful way to network.
The program does pay you for being on your blog.
I love the added opportunities that comes along for the ride! Compensated written and shopping reviews, contests, assignments… all kinds of cool things. 🙂
Care to join? You can apply at anytime, however there generally is a waiting list and a criteria that must be met. I personally find them incredibly easy and supportive to work with.
~ The Website ~
Blogher has a very informative website that is loaded with all sorts of topics of interest. I liken it to a magazine that you’d pick up at a store. You crack open the cover and you see all sorts of categories for everything under the sun.
Let’s go browsin’…
This one’s rather cool. See the teal coloured buttons along the top? Click on BLOG DIRECTORY.
This list will then appear on the right side, allowing you easy access to click on the kind of blogs you enjoy. And yup, there’s even one that says Hobbies, Crafts and DIY Blogs. 🙂
Join the community and you too can add yourself to the list!
If you’d rather be more selective in what you read from the get go, pick and choose! Here I chose Home and Garden, then I selected DIY. And this little gem is what I found.
Oh my gosh.. .what perfect timing! My lips are fried this time of year, and the recipe is easy and el cheapo to make!
Honestly, there’s just a ton of reading on all topics that will appeal to any interest. And the writeups are really well done. And being part of the community also offers you a chance to write for them too which is excellent exposure for your own blog!
There’s also a cool little deal called BlogHer Chatter. It works like Twitter and is great for gabbing and networking.
And as if that isn’t enough…
